Social Work Placements & Professional Links

Placements allow students to build on the skills they have developed while studying and use them in a real world situation.

The benefits for both employers and students are huge; students learn from working alongside professionals and employers benefit from a resource with valuable skills, knowledge and fresh ideas.
